Babu is the only Baul to live in all of North and South America or perhaps outside of India that is from this ancient oral Living lineage. He is probably one of the only Bauls to live outside of India for an extended period of time.. There are perhaps one of two others who have said they were Baul but were not...
Babukishan aka Krishnendu Das Baul is the first Baul to be educated, with a BA and MA in Indian Music, the first Baul to travel the world for 40 years of his generation, the first Baul to be a music composer in Bollywood film, the first and only Baul to live in Canada! He is the only representative of his lineage outside of India.
Not an easy task...he just keeps walking... and I wonder how people will ever learn the truth about his lineage, by one man walking along... singing and dancing his way to preserve his lineage.
We need all the support and love that grace can provide. He truly is a one man show..
Bengali's were are you???
